For the US, the divisions that fought in North Africa from Nov 1942 to June 1943 were:

1 Infantry Division

34 Infantry Division

1 Armored Division

2 Armored Division

Portion of 82 Airborne Division

There were other US divisions that arrived in North Africa and took part in the invasion of Sicily. Also, many other troops would stop in North Africa for rest and re-training before going into combat on the mainland of Italy.
